How did your customer agree to purchase from you without knowing a price first?

They haven't been given a price just yet.

Check out the Pricing Formula link in my signature below. Depending on the complexity of the design and the cost of living in your area, the price for this order would typically be in the $300-500 range.

the best thing to do is a search under "pricing" on this website.  There is TONS to read.  No one can tell you what to charge, you have to figure that out on your own by doing research.

Jason is on the money. I have read his Pricing Formula link and it is extremely helpful! I also did research in my area to find out what others were charging for their cupcakes and cakes. I didn't want to be way under them or over charging. In my town, $3 to $3.25 is the going rate for cupcakes. 

 

My mantra, if the customer doesn't want to pay for your hard work, you don't want them as customers. I have learned this the hard way. Undercutting myself and coming out with no profit at all. Not doing it anymore. It doesn't hurt my feelings if someone wants to go to Walmart and purchase their cake instead. :)
